    Nini's is incredible!!! The food is so good. The same guy has served us each time and every time he remembers that mine needs to be gluten free. Not only good food, but good service. And I've never gotten sick from eating here! I highly recommend it.

    This is my go-to spot for a quick sandwich to go, or to sit with my laptop and work. The sandwiches are delicious with the gluten free bread. The empanadas are not gluten free.

    If I could give this place six stars I would! Super friendly, Fantastic gf sandwiches, and a tasty cafe con leche too! My only regret is that I don't live in Chicago so I can't go here all the time. These folks are definitely doing it right!

    I am a Celiac and tried Nini's for a bite before a concert at United Center based on reviews here. My boyfriend and I spoke to the man at the counter, who was super friendly, knowledgable and kind. We both ordered g free sandwiches to share - which I haven't had in years! They have one panini press but spent quite a bit of time cleaning it prior to making our sandwiches. The sandwiches were so good and the bread was incredible. I did not even get a stomach ache, much less get sick. I was afraid to eat because I didn't want to be sick for the concert but I felt comfortable enough to try. I'm so glad I did because the food was delicious!

    Amazing Cuban Steak sandwich - best I've had since going gluten free.

    I was in Chicago on a business trip, I ate there for breakfast one day, and it was so good I literally considered staying in Chicago an extra day just so I could have another sandwich. Everyone was super nice and very friendly, and the bread is unbeatable. They have worked with a local bakery to create A special bread for their sandwiches.

    having never been to Nini's before today, I must say that I am somewhat convinced that heaven does in fact exist, and that it is within the walls of this deli. the service was prompt and excellent, the gentleman who took my order was super friendly- and when I mentioned I was gluten intolerant, went out of his way to assure me of the quality of their gf bread. my food was done in less than ten minutes, and when I did receive it, it was absolutely wonderful. the bread was delicious and crispy, the meat was cooked perfectly... it was one of the absolute best sandwiches I've had since going gf. I work just around the corner, so this will definitely be one of my new regular dining spots. the price is a little prohibitive (I paid $15 for a sandwich and a bag of chips), but not so much that I can't stop by when I feel the need to treat myself. bottom line: Nini's is my new favourite, it's super convenient and well-equipped to feed someone with dietary restrictions, and the service is amazing. literally my only complaint is that it's a bit loud, but that's just a personal preference.

    Nini's Deli is a family owned an operated Cuban and Lebanese fusion café. They offer a variety of delicious sandwiches all of which can be served on their amazing Gluten Free French Bread that is specially baked for them by Senza (a fine dining 100% gluten free restaurant in East Lake View). Also, try one of their sliders! Served on fried plantain as the bread, these things are GF and super yummy!
